ONSITE: Poems, Prose + Pictures

Explore the relationship between words and pictures in a collaborative setting. We’ll use a wide range of visual images (including, but not limited to: photographs, paintings, postcards, and comics) to prompt new creative writing, in the style and genre of your choosing.

Special Notes

  • Class time will consist of generative writing exercises, as well as opportunities to talk about our creative process and share our work. Students who wish to produce completed drafts should expect to continue writing outside of class time. No previous art or drawing experience is required. All necessary materials (including a composition notebook) will be provided. Some students may wish to bring a favorite writing instrument.

    This is an ONSITE course. All onsite students are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students are expected to adhere to our COVID-19 policies. Onsite courses do not come with studio access outside of class time. Paid open studio access is available through our Studio Access Program. For more info please visit

    Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
